Melania Trump Just Plagiarized Anti-Cyberbullying Guidelines From Obama’s FTC
We all remember when Melania Trump copied Michelle Obama’s speech at the Republican National Convention in 2016. Now, it appears that the first lady is back at it again. On Monday, Melania unveiled a booklet that offers lessons to “help kids act thoughtfully and kindly” online. But there was something familiar about the guidelines.
The Rude Pundit pointed out that Melania’s booklet intro is exactly the same thing Obama’s FTC put out.
Fun fact: The White House trumpets “Talking with Kids about Being Online" as "a booklet by First Lady Melania Trump and the Federal Trade Commission." Except for an intro, it's exactly the same thing Obama's FTC put out. pic.twitter.com/AEf6F0gBbt

The sections on sexting are identical in both versions (including defining it and suggesting that parents tell their kids not to sext because they could be breaking the law). But I just freaking love that they changed the subhead.
